    What do you do for fun that doesn't cost an arm and a leg?

    I've been trying to think of things to do for dates with my wife and we are both wanting to save money. Yet, sitting at home watching movies day in and day out is getting kind of old.

    Any fun suggestions?

    Mini golf, go karts are fairly low in cost.

    Grab some food and some wine and have a picnic somewhere nice for dinner. Maybe take a frisbee with you or something for aftward.

    I tend to overthink dates. Sometimes the best things are the simple things.

    Keep your arms and legs inside the roller coaster at all times and it will not cost you an arm or a leg.

    Great so that takes up about 30 seconds of the date. What should they do with the rest of the night?

    Usually, I dress in all black and go out at night and mug the elderly. Not only is it fun and rewarding, I get some exercise in the process.

    Go mushroom hunting or rock collecting. Stare at the sky. Fly a kite. Grow a beard. Talk to the ducks. Play fantasy baseball. Read ebooks online. Still some free things to do that are not taxed.

    I play disc golf, after you buy a couple disks (cheap ones are $6 a piece and great for beginners) it is completely free and you can play as much as you want.

    Any fun suggestions?
    Go hiking/walking in local parks.
    Have a picnic.
    Check out nearby museums - most have a day where it's free/reduced rate.
